jess bush. his body never recovered. and now the ground gave way between two houses. hole is estimated to be about eight feet across and ten feet deep. >> the sinkhole i went to tell my dad. i know someone might get hurt. >> everybody was very nervous but this is my house. >> heather: scary stuff. officials say as of now the houses are not in danger but both have been evacuated as a precaution. >> rick: switching gears, in this month is shaping up to be a sport' fan dream. the miami historic win streak and tiger woods fighting to regain his ranking as the number one golfer in the world. joining us to talk about this sportscaster, jim gregg. good to talk to you. let's talk basketball, even folks that don't pay attention to college basketball started watching when the calendar turns over to march. this march madness is living up to the hype. >> it's unbelievable. everybody tunes in because every part of the country is involved. only place that didn't have a team involved is texas but they played some games down there so they are involved hosting games. it's incredible. all these upsets a
remember when the bush tax cuts first came out and tom daschle and dick gephardt were the minority leaders. they didn't have anything. they didn't have the house and they didn't have the senate or the white house. yet they came out with this ridiculous show for the press with visual aids. they had to "meet the press" outside because they had a brand-new lexus and they had a rusty muffler. that is what he is going to get, the rich guy. this is all you are getting and basically they said there is nothing in it for you if you are middle class or poor. this is only for the rich and we know that is not true. most people bought it and in fact to this day, most republicans i talk to its unbelievable. forget about the truth. is the perception of the truth. it's amazing. terms like gridlock, a came from them. the last congress was the worst congress ever because they got less done. not quality, quantity. >> guest: very good points. look, the democrats attacked the reagan tax cuts and said they would be awful and unfair and of course we got the longest movement in american history and they attacked
about it president reagan and president bush, 43, are the last two american presidents who pushed comprehensive immigration reform. so, you know, immigration reform is -- has to deal with economic opportunity and growth. and that is very consistent with republican economic policies. so it's something that where i disagreed with governor romney's position on that. but we've got to move forward. and certainly as a committee, we did call on the republicans in congress to come up with a solution that's comprehensive, dealing with immigration reform. we're not trying to say, look, we want to tell republicans in congress what exactly needs to be in the legislation. but we have got to deal with this issue. >> one thing, henry, from the rnc report about that exact issue saying young voter, increasingly rolling their eyes with what the party believes. when someone rolls their eyes at us, they're not likely to open their ears to us. that's again to younger voters. another thing important to younger voters is the issue of marriage equality. we had senator rob portman come out for marriage eq
. this is where america is. i think what jeb bush, the clip you showed of jeb bush, shows what the dramatic problem is for the republican party. they can't be a party of intolerance when it comes to gay marriage, when it comes to immigration, when it comes to whether you believe in climate change or not. >> well, let me ask you both this quickly. my theory in some ways, it's sort of like gun control was in the '90s for democrats, which is there is -- there are plenty of people in the base of the democratic party who still believe gun control, but the leaders of the party did not talk aggressively about it. so there's going to be a part of the republican base in this december nbc "wall street journal" poll. 27% of republicans broadly favor it. so i don't want to oversell it. 27% favor same-sex marriage. there is going to be a part of your party, alex, that doesn't -- does not want to change principles. should your leadership, people running for president, should they, a., say, look, i support same-sex marriage. fact you can disagree. or should they not talk as much about it? >> i think i per
. but not every president going to israel in his first term, george bush didn't. this is great opportunity for the president to sync up with prime minister netanyahu on iran, sir yarks the critical issues of the region where israel is in the eye of the storm. he can also speak directly to the israeli people, via a speech to a bunch of university students. >> aaron david miller, you were a middle east negotiator in a number of white houses and state departments, republican and democratic. what, how much syncing up with prime minister netanyahu do you think is going to take place, realistically? >> it's smart politics, it's smart policy, too. obama has got the most dysfunctional relationship with any israeli prime minister in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netanyahu bears an enormous amount of the responsibility for that. if this president doesn't want to be the president on whose watch iran gets a nuclear weapon and the two-state solution expires, he's simply going to have to figure out a way to work with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start,
to the cairo speech, which was a speech to the arab and muslim world, the belief that bush had ruined america's reputation in the arab and muslim world. and that he needed to fix that. after all, we had 150,000 troops deployed in afghanistan and iraq. he was about to send more. we needed to improve our relations with the arabs and the muslims. and if we could achieve that, i think he felt that would redound to the benefit of israel because then the arabs would be prepared to engage with israel in response to our influence on them, and israel would then respond. that was essentially, as i understand, his theory of the case. and so essentially the message that he was playing to the arab world was i care about you. i understand your concerns. and-- . >> rose: the image of america is no longer the image i want you to have of america. >> correct. and by the way, i understand the palestinian issue is your hot-button issue and i'm going to solve it. he promised them that he would close cuan bega began-- guantanamo and solve the palestinian problem. but the message that he sent to israel at the same
designed by president bush, implemented by president obama, and inspired by president kafka. [laughter] see, reporters are not allowed in the courtroom. they have to watch the trial from behind soundproofed glass and hear the proceedings on a 40-second delay. and to protect national security, the judge or a security officer in the courtroom can hit a mute button which shuts off the audio to the reporters and indicates this by making a red light on the judge's bench spin. the red light also indicates that all dress shirts and men's slacks are 20% off. but on january 29th, the red light turned on and cut the audio, but-- and this is the fun part-- neither the judge, nor the security officer had done it, causing the livid and confused judge to say, quote "note for the record, that the 40-second delay was initiated not by me. if some external body is turning things off, if someone is turning the commissions off under their own view of what things ought to be, with no reason or explanation, then we are going to have a little meeting about who turns that light on or off."

department during the clinton and bush administrations and joined by matt center for american progress. seems like i just spoke to you last night. tell us what this speech means. does this mean the administration is willing to put forth a serious effort towards brokering peace in the middle east and specifically between israelis and palestinians or is this a tremendous speech that doesn't have the substance necessary to carry forth? >> i think it is a speech that underscores obama's speech in rhetoric. unfortunately i don't think it was tremendous in substance. the key aspects what's really necessary for a two state solution, halt to settlements, that was completely dropped from obama's prior substance filled speeches. unfortunately this plan or idea isn't going anywhere. >> why did he drop it? didn't want to insult the israelis to their face? didn't want to challenge them that toughly? >> i think the whole trip was not to make peace in the middle east to make peace with congress at home to pursue a domestic agenda to get work done here in the united states, a realization he needs congress be
and mining call singh, who advised president george w. bush. this was hosted by the washington institute. it is about 90 minutes. >> good afternoon. good afternoon and welcome to the washington institute. i'm rob satlof, the director of the institute. i'm happy to welcome all of you here today. just at the outset if i could please remind you, cell phones off please, not just on, on vibrate but off completely. this event is being live streamed for our thousands of fans around the world. this event is being broadcast by c-span. so everything you say can and will be used against you. so but bless do turn your cell phones off. we're fathered here today because president obama is off for the inaugural overseas visit of his second term and he is going to the middle east, going to israel, to the west bank and to jordan. his itinerary is very different than the itinerary of his middle east trip in the beginning of his first term. we'll hear more about that. and i think the mission of this trip is very different than the mission of that inaugural trip of his first term. we're going to hear about
of jeff bush and workers since demolished the home. and christina aguilera feeling the moment at the "kids choice awards." ♪ oh, oh, come on ♪ ♪ i just want to feel this moment ♪ >> she can sing. aguilera and pit bull opening the awards show last night in los angeles. >> clayton: a huge pit bull fan. >> alisyn: yeah. if katy perry fan, if i know you. >> clayton: why are the nick load yeah signs up. >> alisyn: katy perry favorite singer, but it wasn't all about the awards, people. >> what happens when you twirl it that way? i don't know, i never-- let's see. >> abracadabra. >> oh!. >> alisyn: i think they knew that was coming. sandra bullock and neil patrick harris slimed on the stage. ooh. >> the green slime. you never did that on television, the nickelodeon show. what was the thing you can't say. i don't know, and pour down on you. >> alisyn: i think you dreamt that. >> rick: i have no idea. >> clayton: what are you guys, all old? >> yeah. >> rick: i didn't watch nickelodeon. how about 10 degrees when you work up. take a look out in denver, because we had major problems yesterday
the eight years under president bush, but they act white that all this debt -- they act like all this that happen when president obama was elected. it just amazes me that they want to get rid of medicare, social security, and give tax cuts to the rich. we found outwar war wes cost $6 trillion, were lied into. i do not understand why republicans did not admit they are the ones that ran up the debt under president bush. that is why we are in the shape we're in now. host: of the amendments put it n so far, the senate passed amendment that would eliminate the 2.3% medical device tax. they also defeated an amendment that was the ryan budget proposal from the house. a couple of tweets. daniel says -- host: a couple more calls here. joseph on the republican line. i am 69 years old, and i have seen republican, democrats in power, and i get upset with these republicans because the democrats worked bush and a lot of time they went along with him just because he was president. the republicans need to work with president obama, and they see that when bush was in charge, it did not work, and
in florida. it's in the same town where that massive crater tragically swallowed 37-year-old jeff bush. he was in his bedroom last month when the floor suddenly gave way in his house. his body was never recovered. now in the one one the ground just gave way between two houses. thankfully not under each of one. the hole estimated to be about eight feet wide and ten feet deep. >> once we found out there was a sinkhole i went to go tell my dad because i knew someone might get hurt. >> skater and nervous because this is my house. >> as of right now, official there say the houses are not in danger but they have been evacuated just as a precaution. >>> in an exclusive interview on fox news sunday, kentucky senator rand paul is weighing in on the defense of marriage act. senator paul saying the issue of same-sex marriage should be decided by the states. the federal government, he says, could avoid it all together. listen. >> i don't want the government promoting something i don't believe in but i also don't mind if the government tries to be neutral on the issue. the tax code, i'm for a flat inco

are the democratic strategist joe trippi and former bush senior advisor karl rove. welcome to you both. >> good to be with you. >> shannon: the process is in motion for the first time in several years. when people vote on these, there are political calculations. we saw that in the senate and the house. >> definitely. one thing that is true we have a process this time. the senate was 50-49. a close vote. look at what the house did with that vote. they voted 261 against it. 35 of them democrats. many are up for re-election in 2014. that was part of calculation. there was 221 je votes and 207 no. but look at what the senate did against that one. not even close. only 4 senators voted for it. 59 voted against it. five were g.o.p. senators. some of the no votes in there. four were senators coming up for re-election in 2014. they are looking for tax increase revenue. house side they want to repeal obamacare. how they bring it together and what is in the two different bills, how they reconcile them, we have a process. that is the good news. the bad news is we are having the same debate from the beginni
-a-half away from the sinkhole that claimed the life of jeff bush, back in february. this sinkhole is about 8 feet wide and 10 feet deep. those living nearby are afraid their homes could be next. >> once we found out it was a sinkhole, i went to go tell by dad because i knew someone might get hurt. >> i said, oh, my god. it startled me. >> this is my house. i am worried about not being able to live in this house. >> some people have evacuated as a pro caution. but officials don't being the homes are in any danger. organized labor taking a major blow on thursday when the right to work law takes place in michigan. the historic heartland of unions, after a fiery debate. >> the issue is really being pro-choice for workers, giving them the opportunity to have the freedom to choose. >> this is about defunding union, taking away their power to be able to organize. this is unleashing, i believe this is unleashing corporate greed. >> shannon: this come as organized labor sees record low numbers. when you take out public workers, the number's down to 6.6% for private-sector workers. this is a far cry f
, mounting debt. we have a former media spokesperson for george w. bush and a democratic political consultant to hillary clinton for president. mersaides and richard, welcome to both of you. americans are sick of this. look at the debt clock this. thing keeps whizzing up. the debt is mounting. every sunday, i show this. it has gone up another trillions, it seems, theres and multi-millions. mercedes, how do we stop that in its tracks and make it go the other way? >> we can't stop it when you have the budget plan that senator murray has pushed through. 50 of all, because it has such little support from american voters. for example, we saw a poll saying that only 28% of likely voters supported the senator murray plan. the majority of americans do believe that we need to cut the dev silt by $5 trillion, need to balance the budget and cut spending with no need for raising taxes to get the economy going and this is the way we ensure that our recovery -- we could really have an economic recovery, not by the budget which has been passed, which is the budget to nowhere. >> if the americans want it. h
. this is interesting for a variety of reasons. first of all, in 2004 when he was the architect for george w. bush, you know, legend has it that rove tried to drive a wedge issue on the issue of same-sex marriage of course coming out against it at that point. now he says the republicans could actually have a candidate who supports it, though, let's put the question to connie mack mary bono mack what do you think? possible? >> well i certainly this issue -- i said this weekend to some friends that it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and how. and i think really we're starting to see the debate more about definition. so when you talk about marriage, marriage is a religious institution that i think we ought to protect. and marriage should be between one man and one woman. but i also believe that we ought to afford the same rights and privileges to people who love each other and want to have a family with each other. they ought to be allowed to do that and get all the same rights. >> in california we've had prop 8 which started, people didn't know could they or couldn't they marry their loved one
'm paraphrasing, but that basically what he said. that the commitment that george w. bush got before he was president flying by helicopter by ariel sharon. that's the size of israel and how close it is to its neighbors that netanyahu wanted to hear. >> andrea, chuck todd brought up two-state solution, of course, today. any chance that obama can nudge netanyahu toward that or is the threat from iran right now too much to even go there? >> they are talking about it but i think it will be in john kerry's lap and he will be here saturday night. after going to jordan with the president we will double back to jerusalem, have dinner with netanyahu, have dinner with a couple of advisers on both sides, and they will try to move this along. it is a big stretch. my colleague, veteran journalist here, martin fletcher of nbc, says it is hard for them to come up with a new configuration. you have ynetanyahu out of a ne election. you have palestinian authority. so how you have negotiations and what the formula would be and israel surrounded byis lathe fund meantlism and war in syria, it just really is
family next week. karl rove, a former senior adivsor, deputy chief of staff to president bush and a fox news contribute tore. all this is about money and how we spend it is what we cut to. okay, karl, is it a good decision to go forward with this knowing schoolkids in california have been shut out, et cetera? >> well, look it was a bad decision to cancel the white house tours. you can't tell me in the several 10 of billions of dollars budget of the homeland security department you couldn't have found $74,000 a week to continue the white house tours? cut out some conferences. cut out some waste. cut out phony programs and fund the white house tours. but having made that decision, it would be made in my opinion, even worse if you canceled the historic easter egg roll which is in part funded with private fund as you say, involves 35,000 people come to it and would have made it look worse. bill: do you think they dig a deeper hole if the cancel the egg roll? >> sure. bill: optics are terrible, karl. i think the picture looks awful but the public is shut out but the politics of, the politici
. former adviser to president george w. bush, dan senor. and the reverend al sharpton. >> looking sharp. >> he is double breasted today. boy, he looks good. >> almost double overload. >> wet to that in a second. down in washington, kelly o'donnell. how was the commute coming in this morning? >> it was nasty and truth be told, i have my snow boots on under the desk. >> are they uggs? >> they are. i would kick up my leg but that might be too much for the show. >> we have a lot of to talk about. the basketball team florida gulf coast university. a great story there, the coach there, andy enfield. the first 15 seed to advance to the sweet 16 and playing without fear against georgetown and last night against san diego state and they look like the favorite in both of those games the way they played. >> and enfield is clearly a coach who is a good coach but he doesn't take himself too seriously. the team is playing very light. under very little pressure. they were never expected to be there. he is not overcoaching them and an engaging guy. apparently from everything you read, he has a story fo
, before the vote. saying, look, folks, there is no exit strategy here because the bush administration does not intend to leave. we do not belong as an occupying power in that part of the world. we are going to enable it ran, strengthen it ran, not take down -- enable iran, strgthen iran, not take down iran. i grew up in the military. i served in vietnam. i spent five years at the pentagon as a defense executive and as a marine. my son dropped out of college and fought during some of the harder fighting an infantry man. i was the assistant secretary of defense and secretary of the navy. i spent a great deal of my professional life thinking about these issues and trying to articulate what the proper role should be of the presidency of the military and of the congress. one of the things that we have seen, i think particularly with the advance of technology, the remote weapons systems, the increased use of special forces, and the libya example, which i write about in this piece, is that congress has not really had a voice even in the way that it diduring the vote on iraq when it comes to a lo
of the white house is supposed to be these days. a former deputy assistant under george w. bush and jewelry an advisor to senator frank lautenberg. >> the wooing has aside, and he went and glad-hand and met with paul ryan and now his number two comes out, brad, it's like business as usual, we can't get along and they're leaderless and they don't live up to their deal. what's going on? >> well, obviously, either biden didn't get the memo or doesn't like what the memo says from the president, but the charm offensive now turned offensive. and this is all geared to 2014. the president and joe biden feel now that if they can continue to paint the republicans as obstructionist, that that is their ticket to winning back the government and it's not the way that you get the government back. the way you get the government back if you're a democrat is to do our job. be competent. use good faith in dealing with republicans and get something done with the american people and that will get you elected, but not this type of attitude now where the president gives with one hand and takes away with the other
later the decision to ignore it has cost us. you may recall before the war the bush and ministration predicted the war would cost about $50 billion to $60 billion. that was the estimate from donald rumsfeld and dick cheney. the top advisor in the bush administration was fired for saying the war might cost of to $200 billion. larry wrote a book in which he argued many of the problems that occurred early in the war were related to the fact no one early on was willing to confront the true potential cost in those early days. today the u.s. has spent two trillion dollars in direct outlays for iraq. at this point, as we are thinking about the difference between 50 billion and three trillion, i usually remind my students about the difference between 1 billion and one trillion, up because they sound the same. thinking about it, we know if you had a million thousand dollar bills stacked on the table, it would be 4 inches high, and 1 billion would be 350 feet, which the washington monument is 555 feet, and the capitol dome is 258 feet, so it is in that range. one trillion is 55 miles higher. t
the maps, president bush didn't get that involved. president obama hasn't gotten that involved. they're different people, personally and how they carry themselves politically and in their philosophies. the prime minister in cracking jokes when the president has landed is trying to say, i'm trying and now we'll see if the president is trying. >> we'll get back to jessica in a moment. tom foreman, this trip comes at a time when so many israelis feel increasingly vulnerable due in large part to the major political changes occurring in the region and their neighborhood. tom is taking a closer look at that region. what are you seeing, tom? >> john made references of being able to draw the map there. it is important to bear in mind the map here. look at where the president is visiting here, he's going to really a small part of a small area, but a very important part as you know, with stops in jordan, here in israel, the yellow part in here, and in the west bank here. in this time, he's going to be grappling with many of the issues he's been talking about between the palestinians and israel
